Bacterial Infection with Chlamydia trachomatis is often asymptomatic and causes cervicitis, endometritis and pelvic inflammatory disease in women, with the sequelae of tubal factor infertility and ectopic pregnancy. In men, it causes urethritis, epididymo-orchitis and prostatitis. It is spread through vaginal, anal, and oral sex. The infection is carried in semen and vaginal fluids. This can infect the penis, vagina, cervix, anus, urethra, eyes, and throat. Most people with chlamydia don’t have any symptoms and feel totally fine, so they might not even know they’re infected. This can be easily cleared up with antibiotics. You can prevent chlamydia by using condoms every time you have sex. Complicated chlamydial infections, such as epididymitis or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), require longer therapy, but treatment recommendations vary greatly.
